[Podcast] Armchair Critics - Ep 6 - Eng tour preview and Death of a Gentleman with Jarrod Kimber
In Part 1, Jarrod Kimber of Cricket with Balls and Two Chucks fame, join us just hours before he flies out to Sri Lanka to cover the England tour to chat about the English setup and how important the tour is for both sides.
In Part 2, Jarrod talks in detail about his current labour of love - the cricket documentary - Death of a Gentleman. And Andrew and I hijack it a little to talk about Test cricket in Sri Lanka.
The film Jarrod is making, along with Sam Collins of the Two Chucks, is a snapshot of Test cricket against the Australia/India series 2011-12, trying to work out if the game they love has a future along the way. It is a completely independent film, so they need all the help that they can get in terms of money and crew and equipment.
This could possibly be the most important documentary made about cricket in the current climate that it's in. So, give these guys your money, people!
We did. And will continue to!
